"After graduating from Harvard with a degree in English, I attended the prestigious Iowa Writer's Workshop where I studied and wrote poetry and taught literature and creative writing courses. Since then, I have lived in Mexico City, Guatemala, and New Jersey, where I have taught at the high school, middle school, and elementary school levels. I specialize in teaching English Language Arts, essay writing, creative writing, literary analysis, and application preparation. Reading and writing literature, teaching students, learning about new places and cultures, and spending time with my family give me the most joy in my life.

In addition to my teaching experience, I have helped hundreds of students write excellent college and graduate school application essays with the companies Prompt and Zhishiq. I have extensive experience in helping students turn good first drafts into excellent final essays, and many of my clients have been able to enter top tier universities. I understand what great writing looks and sounds like, and I teach my students strategies for always maintaining consistency in style, tone, and argumentation in their writing. In addition to application essays, I can help students write stellar five-paragraph essays on any topic in the humanities or sciences, and I can help students conduct critical, careful, and incisive literary analysis. I love teaching, meeting new people, and helping students reach their full potential!

I have studied creative writing at the highest level during my time at the Iowa Writer's workshop, and I have read extensively in classic and contemporary fiction, nonfiction prose, poetry, and journalism. I understand the various nuances, tricks, and strategies that can help one to write with beautiful style and subtle sophistication in the English language. Through my vast teaching, tutoring, and editing experiences, I also know what to look for in students' writing, and I can pinpoint errors, both obvious and hidden. I am always learning new words and using them in my own w" less...
